    Comfortable stay and good value for money

    We arrived early before 12 noon and they allowed us to check in since the room was ready. Overall our stay was great, comfortable bed & aircond very cool, bathroom clean, water pressure okay, got space to hang our wet clothes, the location is very near to the jetty, got coway water & instant coffee for free. That will be great if there is TV inside room. Staff very friendly and helpful. Very recommended.
